According to Ejumudo, “for those who reached out to me to back off from this case and also offered money, I am sorry I do not indulge in such unscrupulous practice because an injury to one is an injury to all and injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.

“I will continue to push for a Nigerian society free from rape and defilement.”
